"With the Declaration of Independence our forefathers ‘told the world’ what our country will strive to be.  Likewise, Legacy ‘tells the world’ what we in Ozark Mountain Country will strive to maintain and enhance.
Silver Dollar City, Jack Herschend Co-Founder

If we don't hold the value of our Legacy, we must then bear the responsibility of its death.  We hold true to the Legacy of the Ozark Mountain Spirit - Pass It On.
Dennis Wood - Stone County - Presiding Commissioner

The Ozark Mountain Legacy provides visibility and focus to values of our area so that our community can be intentional about preserving and sharing the Ozark Mountain Spirit for decades to come.
Dr. Sue Head, Dean of Character Education, College of the Ozarks

Legacy Core Values are now a tool for people to use to facilitate, guide,
and generate decisions to enhance lives, families, businesses, local governments, and even people considering the option of moving here or bringing their business to OMC.  It helps them know what and who "fits" here, and saves lots of confusion.  

Howard Boyd, local pastor

"If Branson will maintain its Core Values... if it will maintain Trust in God... if it will maintain the beauty of these hills, if it will maintain this wonderful word called "Friendliness" - throughout its future - Branson will be just fine."
Peter Herschend, Co-Founder Herschend Family Entertainment

Ozark Mountain Country stands for Family, Friends, Fun, Faith, Flag, and Foliage. All of these attributes are extremely important to our  heritage and our future. Ozark Mountain Legacy continues to remind us of the value of preserving these attributes and values for the future.
Gail Myer, Myer Hotels

We believe the Legacy supports God’s purpose for Ozark Mountain Country to be a “City on a Hill” and “Light to a Nation”.
John Baltes - Silver Dollar City Foundation

Over 10 years ago, my wife and I were looking for the ideal place to raise our family - that would focus on the values that were important to us. We found it in Ozark Mountain Country! Legacy has effectively captured the timeless values of this special area, that have been here for generations, and is helping all of us to Champion and Pass It On to our children's children.
Jory Rolf - LegacyQuest and Make Believers International
